Wisconsin’s Unemployment Rate Drops

Good. I’m glad the Supreme Court struck down Evers’ lockdown.

The Wisconsin economy’s labor market improved during June as its seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 8.5% and the state added 99,300 private sector jobs during the month according to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data released today by the state Department of Workforce Development.

The state’s unemployment rate improved significantly from May when it was 12.1%, according to revised data, and is well below the national rate of 11.1%

In June of 2019, the state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 3.4%, and the nation’s was 3.7%.
